I woke up this morning to yet another fridgidly cold day. It was -8 degrees when I left the house this morning. This extremely cold weather is so unusual for Vancouver and we're really just not that prepared to handle it. So I spent another morning looking for something warm yet professional looking to wear.
I purchased my Merino Alice Sweater earlier this year. I just love this sweater. It's a heavy 6-gauge knit with 3/4 length sleeves, 4 large plastic buttons down the front with a swingy torso. I've worn this one other time. The last time was in the early part of the fall and I paired it with the Florentine-Print Quinn Cami. (It was the only time I've ever worn the Cami - as it's just huge on me - so if anyone is interested in purchasing it off me, please contact me). To keep even warmer, I decided to wear my black Perfect Fit V-Neck long sleeve tee, set off with a triple strand baroque pearl necklace and my double crystal enamel bangle purchased from J Crew. I wear this bangle a lot and I really like the fact that it goes with just about anything. It was also such a steal for $13! A sterling silvery gray pair of wide leg pants plus black ankle boot and my J Crew Andie Bag completes this outfit. I am carrying my Andie Bag in Flame for the first time. I had written a review about the Andie in an earlier post. I love everything about this bag! I love the size, the color, the texture, the number of compartments it has plus how different it looks from all other Red bags. I'm just thrilled with it. Can you tell? lol!
So, what was the weather like where you are and what did you wear today?
